MOT - Test Criteria for Motorcycles

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

I don't know if this has changed since I last put a bike through the MOT. My exhaust has no bs stamp and states for race use only. Is this a fail?

Yes, that will fail. You can usually get away without having a BS stamp, as long as your exhaust isn't stupidly loud; but the 'race use only' is an immediate fail.

You could try a strategically placed sticker on your end can, or possibly polish the lettering out?

See where you're going with that. I thought if buy a cheap shit original exhaust from a breakers and rent it out for the cost of posting for people's mot's

That's a brilliant idea. Measurements to follow in the next few days

I had a cracker MOT recently,

In northern ireland it is a goverment organisation, run by monkeys.
One monkey said to another, whilst commenting on something about my bike.
I was standing right next to the monkey,
He said to his work colleague, why should you give a f@#k, it wont be you sliding down the road on your arse, ...........
I never said anything, i just looked at him, thought what a twat, and a shit thing to say.
Then he came over later talking bollocks, blah blah, what speed does it do, ffs!
I took my phone out of my pocket, and said can you repeat what you said earlier, this time i will record you!, ........i pay this monkeys wages!
Sometimes i just wish people would think before opening there trap.
Nevertheless, the bike passed.

But the way it is, do you think i would be riding a bike based on these monkeys piece of paper, i make sure my bike is top working order, all the time,

After all a cert only states the vehicle was roadworthy, at the time it was presented.

Its a money racket, rant over! Roll on next year!
